Thoughts for Thursday (25) - Cursing

Welcome to Thoughts for Thursday! This feature is our outlet to talk with you about whatever we currently have on our minds. It might be bookish, it might not! Now for this week's thought:


In real life I have a bit of a potty mouth when speaking freely. But I've noticed that I have a tendency to censor myself in my reviews and on Goodreads and Twitter. If I type a bad word, I feel the need to go back and remove it, especially the f bomb. I don't know why this is exactly. I've seen plenty of other bloggers curse in their reviews/tweets/status updates. I personally don't take offense to it and obviously other people don't either. But something still stops me from using that f bomb (or another bad/crude word). I guess I worry that I WILL offend someone and I don't want to do that. So there's a limit to what I will allow myself to say on the internet.

I'm just curious to see what you all think of cursing/using bad words in your reviews/social media usage. Do you do it? Do you take offense to it? Is there a limit to what you will say? Do you think I am being less "authentic" by censoring myself? Let me know your thoughts on the subject!

And as a funny aside, I had actually dropped the f bomb in a goodreads initial reaction review and then felt so guilt-ridden and nervous about it that, like, 5 minutes later I went back and reworded what I wrote. I know, I have problems.
